Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you contact me, please take a moment to say hello, good morning, or hey how are ya. On occasion I get "suggest a correction" notices that are brief, abrupt, and unfriendly in tone and seem more like robot communication than actual human beings. It's a personal pet peeve and I don't react well to those sorts of messages. A little simple human courtesy goes a long way with me.

I research my family history in southwestern and south central Pennsylvania for the most part, although I live in northeastern New Jersey. Counties of interest include Bedford, Blair, Franklin, Fulton, Somerset, Westmoreland, Cambria, Fayette, Washington, Indiana, and others.

PLEASE: If you request an interaction with me, whether to discuss a memorial or request a transfer, please do not be "Anonymous" and not provide any means to contact you. I recently had someone request a transfer but when I tried to contact the person, was told that the submitter was anonymous and there was no way to leave a public message for him or her. I'm not comfortable with this method of communicating. Thanks.

PLEASE: If you write to me via "Suggest a Correction" PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE provide me with evidence in the form of some kind of documentation for any edits you'd like me to make. This is especially true if I don't already know who you are. It's not possible for me to simply accept what someone out of the blue tells me is valid without sources, documentation, proof or some other compelling argument. Sorry to sound like a grouch, but that's just the way my work goes.

I'm sorry but many of the headstones out at the Fort Bliss National Cemetery are extremely hard to read, even in person, due to age, striations in the marble, but mainly because the etchings in the white marble have absolutely no letter darkening. Click on the photos to enlarge a couple times and they becomes much easier to read.

I have put her in the Claysburg Reformed Cemetery but that leaves her husband buried in a different cemetery and both their names are on the same headstone. Linda

Wow! That was some article. It certainly explains the relationship which you sent the change for. I can't imagine an article like that being written today. I do love reading the old newspapers. Thanks for the history lesson.

Not seeing the connection between Ralph Mangus and Sarah Manning as his mother. Am I missing something??? This is the edit you sent me. Thanks

Just stumbled across the memorial page you prepared for Elijah P. Edmiston while working on my Mothersbaugh line. WOW! you really put a LOT of work into this! Fantastic. Keep it up and they'll be offering you an honorary doctorate.

RE: Stevenson
You are so welcome! I was out in the snow for hours yesterday. I hadn't been to Stevenson Cemetery for awhile so I took a short trip. There are so many cemeteries around me.
